to romney but in semi quasi defense of romney one mistake that obama made in the 2008 campaign is he said he was going to change the tone in washington. and every president says that. but the president does vice president the power to change the tone in washington. it takes two to consummate this tango, and obama tried. obama tried in many ways and at many different times as you know, the stimulus was more than one-third tax cuts he adopted a republican ideas for his health care reform. he went to republicans many times and said what will it take to get you to compromise with me on this bill and other bills, and he got no votes at all. so the republican's position is disrupt, be destructive, watch things fall apart, and then point their finger at him. >> jennifer: i'm curious what you think -- i have this theory that -- again, i could be all wet, but in the theme of hurricane sandy that bloomberg and chris christie who both need now significant investments to shore up their infrastructure to make sure these rolling storms which this won't be the last one since climate ch
or a third-party leaks sensitive national defense information, that is really our focus. i mean, i am not aware of cases in my district where an allegation is by the defense or a third party that there was something and toward going on on behalf of the information that was leaked. and so, you know, as ken said, there are numerous structures in place these days for whistleblowers to report information. that is true, even in the justice department. our former inspector general is here, and the hajis have structures in place, have structures in place to receive those kind of allegations of waste, fraud, abuse, you know, illegal activity, what have you. and it seems to me that that is -- that is the proper recourse if the government employee believes that something untoward is going on with the structure of the congress. and i don't think that the justice department would, you know, would necessarily expect to get a referral from an intelligence agency and a case involving this sort of thing. >> let's take a couple of questions from the audience. i ask you to please be sure and to the poi

occasions they were told to stand down and to not go in there. defense secretary leon panetta said we simply didn't have enough information for individuals to go into that zen. what do you make of all of this? >> we're in the stage now of conflicting explanation by the administration. we are long past the point of confusion about what happened on the terrorist side. we know it was a planned terrorist attack. this mohammed video explanation which was always foolish is out of the picture. but now the administration is saying different things. this fox report about the cia denying additional help telling its agents there to stand down was contradicted yesterday by the cia itself. so general petraeus is saying it wasn't the cia who denied the request for additional assistance, implying it was somebody at a higher level of authority. and the point you make about defense secretary panetta is also important. jason chaffets, congressman from utah said last night on the hannity show that he spoke with general carter ham, the commanding general of the after infantry -- africon. he said i was never ask

on defense and more than the pentagon says we need. $25 trillion tax cuts would make president george w. bush look like a banker. he must have been asleep at the switch. you said like jerry mcguire "show me the money." you are the business guy. see me back after the election. who can take you seriously? here is my budget although it is not. see me about it after the election. the reason is there are only three options. if you want to repeal tax exemptions you have to cut the tax exemptions on the middle- class and governor romney says he will raise those taxes. or you can do what they have always done in just let the deficit explode again. when the economy goes it'll be a problem. or you could just gut the federal budget. gut funding for education. gut the student loan program. i spent $3 billion of your money to separate the human genome. he know how much economic activity it has generated? $790 billion. barack obama wants to raise it. they want to cut its. one thing they have not disavowed is they intend to cut medicaid by 33% over 10 years and get back to the state of ohio. medicaid provid
confesses to this? >> even though he's allegedly confessed, when defense attorneys get in the picture they'll say he wasn't given his miranda warnings, they'll probably say his parents should have been present. i don't know what kinds of claims they'll raise, so just because a case looks strong doesn't mean there's no preliminary hearing or trial. there will certainly be this hearing, regardless of whether it's a confession. >> not only that, but i assume if it goes to trial, how likely do you think it may be that they claim insanity? >> i think that's a probable defense here. you're looking at a 17-year-old kid, alleged to have killed a 10-year-old girl. we're not clear at all what the motive could possibly be. we don't know how the killing even occurred that the point. there hasn't been any detail that's come out that's reliable. so it's a little early to tell. but just the age disparity, and the lack of apparent motive, would suggest a severe mental problem. so yes, i think an insanity defense is certainly a possibility. >> when you look at his background, as i understand it, his parent
side up. joel brodsky has been widely criticized for his handling of the drew peterson defense. members of the team had publicly questioned his unorthodox legal maneuvering after peterson's murder conviction last month. jurors said his ill-fated decision to call stacy peterson lawyer to the stand prompted the guilty verdict. he reportedly asked another group of lawyers to take over the expected appeal but earlier this month the former bolingbrook police sgt reversed himself saying joel brodsky would remain in play. at the judge's urging, petersen asked for time to get an independent legal opinion or we could learn what his intentions were, joel brodsky made what had to be a difficult decision to withdraw from the case and stepped down as peterson's attorney for the case. we will hear more coming up on the wgn news at 5:00. >> stay with us. when we come back we're celebrating bulls day here at wgn. >> commentator stacy king is joining us to talk about the new season and what to expect this year.

's a document about the defense intelligence agency which is the defense department version of the cia. it basically says, our intelligence of weapons of mass destruction is terrible. we really don't know anything. and that is coming out at the same time that the administration is saying these things about, we're going to have mushroom clouds over new york. and so was their intelligence to say that there are weapons of mass destructions? yes. was it did? no. was there a lot of intelligence the other way? yes. one of the things that people forget, we sent the weapons inspectors back in. there with a bunch of you in inspectors and they said, we can't find anything. and that was not viewed as intelligence. that was viewed as let's make fun. and so, you know, it was a bad application of intelligence by people who thought they knew it with the answer was. >> yes. >> it sounds like based on what you say, a lot of the decisions made a based on faulty intelligence. i guess and just wondering, we are we pass the 500. we a lot of things on the rise in. >> actually, one of the more interesting co
